    Blackhat (2015)

    Fun fact: I won a t-shirt and a backpack with the Blackhat logo at trivia that I assume were promotional items for the film. I sleep in that Blackhat shirt all the time. I don't give a shit about the movie because I heard it sucked.

    Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever (2002)

    Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever (2002, 91 minutes) Dir: "Kaos" (AKA Wych Kaosayananda) Starring: Antonio Banderas, Lucy Liu I think all I really need to say is that this film is technically the worst reviewed film on Rotten Tomatoes, like, ever. It has 0% out of 117 reviews. Per the website: "A startlingly inept film, Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever offers overblown, wall-to-wall action without a hint of wit, coherence, style, or originality." Roger Ebert: "[The film] is an ungainly mess, submerged in mayhem, occasionally surfacing for cliches, overloaded with special effects and explosions, light on continuity, sanity and coherence. There is nothing wrong with the title... that renaming it 'Ballistic' would not have solved. Strange that they would choose such an ungainly title when, in fact, the movie is not about Ecks versus Sever but about Ecks and Sever working together against a common enemy - although Ecks, Sever and the audience take a long time to figure that out." Fun fact: This movie has a Game Boy Advanced game inspired by it and the game has really good reviews! IGN gave it a 9 out of 10. Who would have thought? It even got its own sequel. Second Opinions: - "I love this movie. I haven't seen it since I was 13. I don't care if others don't like the film but I like it cuz it got action and thriller. Antonio Banderas and Lucy Liu are amazing in this movie. I like the scene where they fight. And that one scene when she was shooting. All I know is that this movie is a classic and I really enjoy watching it again after so many years" - "This is an easy movie to lambast, but I won't take that route--it rates 3 stars for the simple reason that it accomplishes what it sets out to do: kick-butt action scenes and snappy one-liners. Banderas and Liu are simply cool. In the movie, they get to be cool with guns. It's not a film that makes you think, or even one that you have to really pay attention to, but it is exactly what it claims to be: an action film that goes ballistic. Bullets, explosions, hand-to-hand combat, thin plot, lackluster dialogue--the ingredients to 90% of all action movies. This is one for people who like Banderas and Liu. I do, so I enjoy the movie enough to buy it, and give it three stars." - "I watched this movie back when it first came out and used to have a framed poster of it hanging in my old apartment. I recently re-watched the movie on cable and enjoyed it again! I think I know why this movie got so many bad reviews and it has nothing to do with too simple of a story line. Really? That's the complaint? An action movie with a simplified story line...surely there have never been any of those before! No, I think many people didn't like this because of the casting. You have a male Latin lead with an Asian female lead, and "the white guys" are the bad guys. That's why people didn't like this movie. There were some great action scenes in this film, a great soundtrack, charismatic actors and a story line that didn't get in the way of the action. This was a great film, and they should cast more in a similar manner." - "No plot. Yes! Although it tries to sound smart, I wasn't paying attention. FBI agent Ecks (Antonio Banderas) teams up with an Intelligence agent named Sever (Lucy Liu) to take down a weapons expert and find his wife and son. That's about it. Tons of bullets fly everywhere, cars fly everywhere and people fly everywhere. This movie is great. "Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever" is genius. That's all I have to say." - "This one it alright as well."

    Brenda Starr (1992)

    Brenda Starr (1992) Dir. Robert Ellis Miller Writ. Noreen Stone & James D. Buchanan Starring: Brooke Shields Diana Scarwid Jeffrey Tambor June Gable Charles Durning Tony Peck Timothy Dalton A film based on the Brenda Starr, Reporter comic strip created in 1940. The film was actually shot and completed in 1986, but wasn't released in the United Stated until 1992 due to litigation issues over the IP. The plot from Wikipedia: "Mike is a struggling artist who draws the Brenda Starr comic strip for a newspaper. When Brenda comes to life and sees how unappreciated she is by Mike, she leaves the comic. To return her to her rightful place and keep his job, Mike draws himself into the strip. Within her fictional world, Brenda Starr is an ace reporter for the New York Flash. She is talented, fearless, and smart, and she is a very snappy dresser. The only competition she has is from Libby Lipscomb, the rival paper's top reporter. Brenda heads to the Amazon jungle to find a scientist with a secret formula, which will create cheap and powerful fuel from ordinary water. There, she must steal the formula from her competition and foreign spies." The movie got horrible reviews. I think for two main reasons: 1) Brooke Shields was a bad fit for the characters, and 2) The film was really outdated by the time it was released. I guess they wanted to get some kind of return on investment. An Amazon Second Opinion: "Five Stars: Can't go wrong with Timothy Dalton and Brooke Shields."

    Episode 191 - Rad: LIVE!

    Yes yes yes thank you, my boyfriend and I were so confused by this too. I mean some wrestlers do backfilps but Hulk was such a shitty wrestler, he definitely wasn't doing them. Hell, he was basically pacing around the ring while his competitors were selling him.

    Episode 191 - Rad: LIVE!

    Speaking of this guy and his henchmen - if they were wanting to secure an endorsement deal with a winner of the Hellrace, why didn't they just wait until after the race was over and then propose it to the guy who won? Why did they have find the person first and then make sure they win the race? It didn't make sense to me.

    Episode 191 - Rad: LIVE!

    Sorry if someone already posted this but I wanted to share something I saw on the IMDB page, although I cannot find it anymore of course: The main theme of the film, played at the beginning and end, wasn't part of the soundtrack and because it was written solely for the film it has been "lost to the ages." As if you couldn't just rip the song from the film if you needed a copy of it.

    bump, also this movie was nominated for a Golden Razzie but I don't believe it won.
  12. National Lampoon's European Vacation Dir. Amy Heckerling Wr. John Hughes Starring: Chevy Chase, Beverly D'Angelo, Dana Hill, Jason Lively I love the original National Lampoon's Vacation and the Christmas sequel (the first Xmas sequel, that is). I forgot about how horrible the European movie is. Like holy crap it's bad. How does this have a 6.2 on IMDB? The main issue I think is that it relies on a lot of creepy sexual jokes that aren't funny, just uncomfortable. For example, at the very beginning of the film the family is on a game show called "Pig In a Poke." The host of the show (played by Gomez Addams from the TV show, John Astin!) greets each member of the Griswolds Family Feud-style. But when he gets to Audrey, he gives her a very gross, long kiss on the mouth. She's a teenager, by the way. Also, towards the end of the film, Ellen Griswold is almost raped by an Italian charlatan. A running joke in the film when they are in France is that the French people they encounter speak poorly of the Griswolds, which of course the Griswolds can't understand. But some of these include comments on Ellen's chest and that Audrey has "a nice ass." Again, she's a teenager in this movie and the man saying this is like 40-something. There are other examples I could list but won't here. They also rely on fat jokes with Audrey's character. She eats when she's upset that her boyfriend wants to openly date other girls. Ha ha how funny, right. I looked up who wrote this film and was shocked to see that John Hughes did. I was certain someone else was responsible because Hughes was usually so much better than to stoop this low. But I was wrong. Not that Hughes didn't write sex jokes, but his usually weren't so, you know, *shudders*. Eric Idle appears as an English man who is hit by Clark while riding his bike. He reappears several times in the film but the running joke isn't really much of a joke at all. Kind of a wasted use of Idle's talent if you ask me. Don't worry, there is a musical montage of the family trying on new clothes in Italy. The movie was a financial success, with a budget of $17 mil and a USA gross of $49.4 mil. The good thing about this was probably that it green-lit the much funnier, much better Christmas sequel.

    Vicious Lips (1986)

    Vicious Lips (1986) Director: Albert Pyun Writer: Albert Pyun Running Time: 1 hr 24 min Rating: R Starring: Dru-Anne Perry, Gina Calabrese, Linda Kerridge Yeah so this movie... it's basically like a battle of the bands-type plot except set in outer space. A band loses their lead singer so their manager finds a naive girl to take her place at the last minute, and then about 30 minutes later they get the opportunity of a lifetime to play a gig in outer space that's a big deal. Their spaceship crash-lands onto a planet of sand dunes and they scramble to figure out their next move while also making the gig on time. That synopsis makes it sound much more exciting than it actually is. The film does not take itself very seriously, so I debated on whether or not to submit this. But I also feel like it's trying too hard to be over-the-top, when actually the story is pretty boring. The hair and outfits are nuts as you can imagine. The music is pretty alright but also space-related and kind of corny. The film was only released on blu-ray within the last 10 years and since then some have called it a cult classic, but I still think it's too boring to be a good cult classic. Like, at least in The Room there's people walking in and out of the apartment for the whole running time - in this film there's gobs of women just staring off or walking around a space ship. Also - The guy who directed this also did Cyborg with Van Damme. AND a ton of action/sci-fi movies starring rappers like Snoop Dogg, Master P, Ice-T, etc. Of course Steven Seagal and Tom Sizemore were in some of his films as well. Here's some Amazon Second Opinions: Five Stars: "YOLO" - "This is true cinematic art at its finest. Required viewing for any serious student of film history. The quality of the wiggery is superb, and the vocal styling and athleticism of the pedantic manager character deserves recognition. Did I mention there are tits? At points, the mirage of a plot appears before us like an oasis in the desert of the insanity that is this movie, but is quickly revealed as an illusion - genius! Our friend Greg recommended this movie, and we should have known better. TLDR; Lunar Madness is dope af." Four Stars: "Fun!" - "Girl band crashes their ship and soon find themselves under attack. Not sure why this was unreleased here in the USA for so long. I watched this on HD and really liked it. Some parts drag especially in the middle, but most movies do."
